About the Pub

Beamed 15th cent. pub close to a popular roadside golf course. The pub was renamed Saracens in early 2010. Villagers are entitled to play 8 holes which are on common land.

Historic Interest

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 27 Mar in 1861 states that : "Auction of the free Inn, Sarecen's Head, Newton, by…the trustees of the late Mrs Elizabeth FARROW, deceased. Possession may be had on 3rd July next, or the tenant will gladly take a lease." Nothing is new - It was reported in the Suffolk Free Press (September 28th 1898) that: "At Sudbury Petty Sessions William & Frederick Day of Boxford Lane, Newton, were charged with being drunk on the Newton road. Inspector Offord said he found them hopelessly drunk lying on the path on Saturday evening at about 8-30, the chairman said were they disorderly, the Inspector replied they were too far gone for that, he had requisition a passing cart to take them home. Defendants said they had a whisky each at the Saracen’s Head then when they came to Sudbury they had a whisky at the Bear Inn then to the Anchor where they had some beer then on the way home they had some more whisky at the Bear Inn. 1s each & 1s 6d costs." Most of the building dates from the 18th century but some parts are earlier. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at
